Horatio Bunce – American Hero

If I asked you to name ten American heroes, George Washington would probably make the list. If you thought in terms of more modern history, perhaps you might add names such as Marcus Luttrell, the Navy SEAL who told his harrowing tale in his book, Lone Survivor. I doubt that Horatio Bunce would be on...

Demeaned, Dethroned Debate

I did not watch the dueling governors, Ron DeSantis and Gavin Newsom, last week. Reports tell me that millions of Americans did do so, but I have yet to come across any of them. Like me, those people I’ve asked watched a few opening minutes or caught a highlight reel the next day. But watch...

Horror and Hysteria

This headline greeted readers of the Wall Street Journal last week. “The Tragedy of Being a New Mom in America: One in five mothers in the U.S. suffers from mood and anxiety disorders during pregnancy or soon after birth. For many, help is hard to find.” What followed was a shallow, flawed article filled with...

Trust vs. Mistrust

Psychological theories come and go. Sometimes, bogus ideas take hold and do damage as they embed themselves in society, while authentic ideas can lose popularity as they are not cutting-edge and exciting. I do not know if Erik Erikson’s stages of psycho-social development are in vogue now, but his views were what I remember from...

Constructive Construction

There is a lot of construction going on outside our window. Bobcats are maneuvering around cranes and cement mixers are dancing around excavators. If I was a seven-year-old boy, I would be ecstatic. But I am not; so I am not. Access to our street is often impeded, our parking spots are blocked, construction noise...

Putting Government in Charge of Grief

Another way to destroy capitalism? Perhaps it is time to repurpose Presidents Kennedy’s aphorism. How does “Ask not what your company can do for you, ask what you can do for your company,” sound? I’m prefacing my remarks in this way, because I imagine that the words that follow may come across as cruel, unsympathetic...

Great News! Donations to Liberal Organization are Soaring

This might strike you as strange, but I think the fact that individual donations to liberal organizations, including Planned Parenthood, are increasing is great news. Not because I support these organizations and want them to have funds to carry out their objectives; I don’t. However, the increase in donations reflects a fear that government funds...

Dear Ivanka

Please stop trying to help mothers. This may sound like a strange request from a mother of seven, five of whose daughters are raising little ones right now. But, you see, when the government gets involved ‘helping,’ there are always unintended consequences. Sometimes, ideas that sound good get implemented and turn out to have terrible...

What’s up with gender?

Question: I’ve noticed a change in your writings. Why do you now use the word gender instead of sex? ∼ Kristal M. Answer: Dear Kristal, What an astute observation. We’re a bit humbled that you are paying such close attention to our words. The answer to your question is simple, but the implications are not....

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Bernie Sanders (with whom I’d much rather spend an evening with than Hillary Clinton) is almost comical in his sputtering fury against “Wall Street.”  When he panders to students, it’s “Wall Street” that imposes draconian interest rates upon their loans.  When he panders to groups based on skin color, it’s again “Wall Street” that causes...
